Byker Scrapyard Fire

A huge fire broke out in the former Shepherds scrap yard on Byker Bank and Albion Row in Byker at around 12-30 this afternoon.

Here is a short video that I shot with my camera just under 2 hours later.






The first 4 photos were taken in Byker within the first 30 minutes.







The following photos were taken some time later around 2 o'clock
